“Classical Selections” by the University Orchestra & “Requiem for the Living” (University Singers, Chorale & Orchestra)
“Requiem for the Living” by Dan Forrest, at its core, is a prayer for rest–traditionally, for the deceased. The five movements of Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living, (2013), however, form a narrative just as much for the living, and their own struggle with pain and sorrow, as for the dead. Forrest’s 40-minute setting of the traditional Latin mass is not only tonal but highly accessible: a work of soaring melody and luminous harmony.
